R.E.M. Documentary Coming To Movie Theaters For One Night

(hennemusic) The Alexander Young documentary, "R.E.M. By MTV", will screen in US theaters next month ahead of its DVD/Blu-ray release on June 2. Fathom Events will screen "R.E.M. By MTV" in more than 300 U.S. movie theaters on Tuesday, May 19 as a part of their "Classic Music Series."

The project traces the career of the Athens, Georgia band who formed in 1980 and helped bring alternative rock into the mainstream. The group tells their story in their own words, through three decades of performances and interviews R.E.M. gave to MTV channels in the USA and around the world. "It was a typical Athens story," says drummer Bill Berry. "Four guys meet at a party and want to play other parties and drink beer and have fun."

"R.E.M. By MTV" was originally issued as part of 2014's "REMTV" box set; it premiered on MTV, VH1 and Palladia last November and the forthcoming release marks the first time it will be available as a standalone film. Check out the trailer here.
